A few weeks ago, I got to do one of my absolute favorite parts of my job as a photographer: an engagement shoot for one of my wedding couples. Why do I love engagement shoots so much? So many reasons! This is usually one of the first times I get to sit down in person with my couples and connect with them. It’s a great time to relax, have fun, and focus on all the fun parts of being in the midst of the wedding planning process. For my couples, it is a day I want them to relax and just have fun. To focus on their love for each other and all the things they are so excited for as they begin their lives together as a married couple. Wedding planning can be stressful (I remember!) – the day of the engagement shoot shouldn’t be. It’s day for fun – and for me, it’s a day for making new friends. I love connecting with my couples, hearing about their love stories, and getting to document this wonderful journey for them. It’s both an honor and a joy. And when I get couples as awesome as these two? Well – it’s just plain FUN too.
Katelin and Aug – I can’t even tell you how excited I am to photograph your wedding!!! Thank you for giving me the chance to capture these moments for you. I am blessed to have gotten to meet you both.
